Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflection




The Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflection (JCTR), a faith based organisation and a Ministry of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), was formed in 1988 to translate into action Christian principles and values in its quest to promote social justice in Zambia. It provides from a faith inspired perspective, a critical understanding of current social, political and economic issues and generates action to address them.

Key to its mission is the gathering and analysis of pertinent and topical data on issues, whose results are then employed in popular education and engagement with policy makers, service providers and other duty bearers on the identified issues.

In an attempt to realize its vision, JCTR among other things monitors the cost of living through its Basic Needs Basket (BNB), as well as the Satellite Home Survey (SHS) and uses the findings to advocate for improved wellbeing of Zambians. Since the early 1990s, JCTR has been monitoring the rising cost of living through a monthly price survey of a basket of essential food and non-food items.

The SHS is a tool to understand how people are living in high density areas. The BNB together with the SHS has enabled JCTR to advocate for social justice and social equity through real life evidence. In all this research and information dissemination, JCTR has also strived to influence agricultural policies in order to ensure food and nutrition security.

JCTR has partnered with Irish Aid and begun implementing a project that is aimed at complementing efforts of other partners to combat malnutrition by making information available on the affordability of nutritious foods. With the now Basic Needs and Nutrition Basket (BNNB) tool, it is hoped that this will aid consumers to understand the costs of a nutritious diet, whilst encouraging Government to put in place policies that address the affordability and availability of nutritious and diverse foods.

With the emergence of the Corona virus disease (COVID-19) and scientific evidence of a good immune system and hygiene in fighting the disease. Organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) recognise that a robust and diverse food supply is an essential part of the health and nutrition response to COVID-19. WHO, together with partners, is providing nutrition and food safety guidance and advice during the COVID-19 pandemic for governments, food businesses, health workers and the general public, to maintain good health and prevent malnutrition in all its forms. In the same light JCTR/Irish Aid through the Nutritious Foods Availability and Affordability Promotion Project have realised the need to heighten knowledge on nutrition and promotion of hygiene and safety among the communities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
